The company will go through it all over again on the next project, even if the product is similar to the previously delivered one. Thus, there is effectively little or nothing to amortize or recover the costs. For these reasons, far from being ignored, these upfront product definition processes need to be carefully planned and accounted for. Moreover, sophisticated customer interac Read More...
The Blurry Line between ERP and PLM in Engineer-to-order (ETO) Manufacturing
